The title in the Navigation Bar in Navigation Pages Disappears when being set by either this.Title = "Title" in C# or Title="Title" in XAML. iOS 11 builds are unaffected.
Tested in Xamarin Forms: 126.96.36.1992.
Downgrading to Xamarin Forms v188.8.131.520 immediately fixes the problem.

Does this occur on a specific version of Android? We have not had reports of this issue in the prereleases and it doesn't appear to occur with the use of the most basic reproduction attempt.
This is on Android 7.0 on a Galaxy S6 Edge+.
I'm able to reproduce the issue every time.
1. Install Xamarin.Forms 126.96.36.1990
2. Clean & Rebuild project
3. Deploy on device
4. Navigation bar titles appear
5. Upgrade to Xamarin.Forms 188.8.131.522
6. Clean & Rebuild project
7. Deploy on device
6. Navigation bar titles no longer appear
any update on this yet?
No, not at the moment. I will have to see if we can get a hold of that specific device in question to test against.
Okay, someone was able to test this to see it occurs.
From what we can tell, this occurs when a TabbedPage is involved, but not a basic NavigationPage+ContentPage.
I get this happening on a Navigation Page + Content Page combo. I don't use Tabbed Pages.
We haven't reproduced this with that combination. We're going to need more info about specific devices, Android versions, and so on where that occurs.
The software configurations are listed in my first post, the device is a Samsung S6 Edge+ running Android 7.0.
It occurs when trying to show a ContentPage in a NavigationPage.
I'm not sure what more I can add. If there are specific things you would like to know, please shoot the questions off to me, I'll be happy to answer them.
I can add that this might have something to do with the theme.
My navigation page title text does not show up when I use:
but it does show with:

This I can confirm happens to me too. This is a bug that still exists in 184.108.40.206203
I tried creating a sample project to post the issue to github, but could not reproduce the issue, even with changing the theme.
I'd suggest creating a repro project and posting to their github if you want them to look at this.
If anyone is still running into this bug you should be looking at changing your android base class. If you created your project a few years ago you're probably still using the ActionBarActivity base class. If you change that to a AppCompatActivity and also start using newer theme like @android:style/Theme.AppCompat.Light.DarkActionBar it should be fixed.
All newly created xamarin projects use this too, so you can peek at some of that code to see what your new mainactivity and styles should look like.
Hope this helps! :)
Thanks Rogier, I will test that out.
I had same issue but only sometimes (and on Android only) and it seems my problem was caused by using NavigationPage wrong. I changed from:
var MainPage = new MainPage(); // MainPage : TabbedPage
var Tab1 = new NavigationPage(new Tab1Page()); // Tab1Page : ContentPage
var Tab2 = new NavigationPage(new Tab2Page());
var MainPage = new NavigationPage(new MainPage());
var Tab1 = new Tab1Page();
var Tab2 = new Tab2Page();
Haven't stumbled upon this issue anymore.
